The 9th ANNUAL MISS FILIPINA INTERNATIONAL 2022: A World Moving Forward Promoting Philippines Tourism and a Return to Normalcy

MFI 2022 Candidates


   (Los Angeles, CA – June 5, 2022). As the world gradually recovers from the global pandemic that slowed tourism to nearly every country in the world, Insider Entertainment Group’s 9th Annual MISS FILIPINA INTERNATIONAL (MFI) and MISS FILIPINA TEEN INTERNATIONAL (MFTI) 2022 kicks off the current edition of its annual pageant with the Official Press Presentation of Candidates, hosted by Porsche of Downtown Los Angeles. Porsche DTLA has been a major sponsor of MFI since the pageant was founded in 2012.

   This year’s beautiful, accomplished and exciting group of candidates come from Filipino communities from all over the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. More than forty young ladies are putting it all on the line, and competing for the coveted crowns of MISS FILIPINA INTERNATIONAL and MISS FILIPINA TEEN INTERNATIONAL, for the chance to wear the crown for a full year, along with the generous prize packages. MFI and MFTI titleholders have traditionally traveled to the Philippines on sponsored visits to many top destinations to promote the tourism industry. MFI and MFTI holds the distinction of being the only pageant of its kind with tourism promotion as its fundamental core value. MFI and MFTI titleholders have previously been guests of honor at leading tourism destinations in Boracay, Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, Baguio, Subic Bay, Ilocos Sur, Albay, and many others.

    The winners will be awarded on Coronation Night, to be held on July 30, 2022, at 5:00 p.m., at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, to be preceded by the Preliminary Competition, set for July 29, 2021, at 7:30 p.m., at the same venue.

   Insider Entertainment Group is proud to announce that this year’s host will be Filipino award-winning actor, host, singer and entertainment icon, PIOLO PASCUAL.
